Mr Hartnett 1/5
Channel 6 action news there are times that I’m not able to get your broadcast on my smart phone maybe you’re due for an update or can you send tips and tricks to me thank you
Needs bugs worked out 2/5
Not as easy to navigate as previous app. I liked previous app that had phila, NJ, and national news tabs that were easy to see. This app takes a long time to load and some links do not open. I don't like the additional advertising either. Ugh, just when you have something you like, they want to change it!
Deserves NO stars! 1/5
Very poor app. You tap on a story on the left side, it loads on the right, but only partially. Between paragraphs, if there’s an Ad or video, there’s a spinning wheel for a while, then the whole story jumps way down somewhere below. If you were reading the story, you’re suddenly way down and you’ve got to scroll back up! Very annoying! Also crashes frequently.
Will not open!
It has been well over a month since this app will even open. I found a new weather app and I’m about to find a new news app and delete this useless one.
By D. Hayman Pottstown
6 ABC is awesome. Easy to use and very informative. Love it!!
Articles skip 3/5
Please fix a frustrating glitch. Every article jumps around to a different part even though I’m not finished reading a particular section. I constantly have to scroll back to the paragraph I was trying to read.
Ok, but not great 3/5
By Mike A1234577
Has basic info but not easy to find what you’re looking for. A search feature would be nice.
Pretty good 5/5
I like your stories
Inappropriate dress of female newscasters 1/5
Why when the weather is frigid do the female newscasters dress as if it was summertime ????
This is a disgrace. Too many ads and worthless info in between stories. I’m deleting it . You call this a news app?
The old version needed some improvements...but this?? Did they even test it at all? These are not even bugs they are serious design flaws. It doesn’t work on my iPhone X. The videos don’t play or I am getting several audio feeds simultaneously. Then there are the ads! Lengthy and if you want to watch a few stories or replay one the ads play each time! No!
Too many ads! 3/5
I usually go elsewhere if I can because of the ads.
Great App!! 5/5
I’ve been a fan of channel 6 Action News for 50 yrs and this App continues the love affair!
Old news. 2/5
Same news on this app day after day.
Keeps crashing! 1/5
This app has been crashing every time I attempt to watch a video. If I click to watch the weather forecast it starts to play the ad that we’re FORCED to watch EVERY time, but the whole app just force closes before the video starts. Please fix! iPhone XS, software is updated.
Too many unwanted ads. 3/5
There are more ads on line than on TV.
Worst news application I’ve seen: spotty video play and waaaaay too many advertisements.
Was good, not anymore 1/5
You’ve made the weather section unusable. Having to sit through 30 seconds of adds for a video that doesn’t work. You need to go back to the old format. What happened to the written forecast that used to come with the video?
Update is terrible 1/5
Update to forced video is terrible. I can watch TV for live news or clips. I enjoy reading news. 1 star is for the current format.
I’m in love with 6abc action news 🥰 I’m a Philadelphia native 🙌🏾 5/5
By Vi a thriver
I’m in love with 6abc action news 🥰 I am a Philadelphia native 🥰
No complaints now I can take the news everywhere I go.
The stories aren’t always updated. I always have old news on my feed.
No sound 1/5
There are multiple times that I am trying to watch a clip and there is no sound when it is suppose to. 😢
I want to like it but... 3/5
The news stories are written using slang. A recent report of car vandalism in the city was described by saying windows were "busted up". Seriously ABC? Who writes this? This is journalism? I'm disappointed that you are contributing to the dumbing down of America. Show some respect for your viewing audience, please!
Best news in philly 5/5
Thank you guys for keeping me updated on everything. Specially crimes around my neighborhood 😔. Bless you all
Turn off autoplay! 2/5
Be sure to turn off autoplay if you don’t want to wake your partner in the middle of the night. Even if master volume off, videos come at full loudness.
Light snow flurries 1/5
Same old crap from weather people. Wish they would get people that would forecast half the truth would be great
Video assault 1/5
By Delaware Guy
Every news story has video that automatically turns on whether you want to see it or not. Most start with commercials. It should be the viewer’s choice if that person wants to view the video.
I feel like you all’s you do now is video assault me. This app may have to be deleted.
Calm down the Ads! 2/5
By Zibby the Zip
I like having the Alerts on my phone to hear about news, school closings, and if there’s a crazy traffic problem in the area.
However, whenever there is news, I then click on it, and there is always a 30 second commercial before the actual news video will start playing.
And it’s over and over and over again if I want to watch a 2nd video, a 3rd video, or even breaking news.
I know you got to make money like all businesses, but the Ad Commercials are a little overboard. Just saying.
Channel 6 news 5/5
Greatest reporters on tv
News app 3/5
By summit rick
Can u please update the app more often. Maybe every 2-3 hours instead of twice daily. Also MUST include more Delaware news. I live in Delaware and rely on up app for updates. Unfortunately new news is only posted every couple of days rather that daily. Ur missing a ton of news that should be on there. Oh and keep the New Jersey news and Huston Texas news off the Delaware only section. Thanks so much.
Scrolling issue 3/5
Video portion is great. The scrolling has issues. After a second or two of scrolling it will automatically zoom to the bottom of the story.
Can’t find anything when I search 2/5
So frustrating, I hear something on the tv and want to pull it up later and can’t find.
Why would you ever update an app to automatically play videos with sound without the user clicking on the video? This greatly limits when users can browse the site and is honestly pretty annoying.
Improvements recently made are terrible 1/5
By 6abc viewer
Recent improvements made a good app bad. There used to be a nice list of news stories where you could pick one to read. Now, you have to constantly scroll to see different stories- scroll up and down as well as left and right. Terrible.
Auto Video 1/5
The videos play automatically when you are trying to read the articles. Annoying.
Love it 5/5
Fix the bugs! 1/5
By MacBook Pro 2014
Two major issues. One just started with the latest update - all videos automatically play when you open a story to read. Please make this go away! The other has been going on a while - as a story loads, it brings you all the way down to the bottom of the article, causing you to have to scroll back up and find the spot you were reading. So annoying!
More fake news 1/5
They actually reported a story that they couldn’t confirm from buzz feed! Really. Not a real news station but another Democratic sponsored news station affiliated with Disney? Turns out the story was totally false. We need honest unbiased news.
Terrible auto play videos app update 1/5
For people trying to catch up on local news while in a doctor’s lobby or on their lunch break at work, we really don’t need a video to auto play when you’ve provided words to us to read. This is a horrible update and one that will stop a lot of people from checking the news in situations where they are trying to be quiet. There was a play button before - why does it have to be shoved down our throats now?
Work on this website... now.. you can’t even look at a story without an advertisement.. blaring out!!! Geez!!
Need more adds 1/5
Please increase your add revenue so you can pay someone to fix this app.
On a more positive note, I like how I can read an entire sentence before springing to the ad!...automatically!
Using this app takes the edge off of the news. When I sat down with a newspaper I would get myself totally immersed in the story. I find it virtually impossible to take anything meaningful away after struggling to read from an app that feels more like a video game.
Why isn’t there a pay to delete advertisements option like other apps have?
Ads videos 1/5
The advertising videos run over the news videos! After watching the ad, the audio restarts and runs over the news videos! Very annoying!
By Self St. Rage
I don’t want to have to watch a video to get weather info or updates. Please bring back the written summaries! Thanks
Registered nurse 5/5
By Tar judy
I love channel 6 news ,I have been watching it since 1966 , I remember when Lisa Thomas came to channel 6 .
Love Action news! 5/5
By Redhead girl!
Love action news! I grew up watching Action news! I didn’t know any other news station existed!
Bring Back the old Format 2/5
I’ve never written a review before but I really feel I need to now. I really dislike the latest format. I don’t want to have to scroll through all the news stories to see what I want to read. It was much better when I could scroll down a list of stories & select what to read. Also while reading s story it skips around & I have to scroll up to find my place. Please fix this.
To Many commercials! 3/5
Please stop running the same commercial before each segment.
Pls go back to the previous format 1/5
This new format is not user friendly and makes it very difficult to actually see what the news is....I shouldn’t have to hunt for it....I realized I that I look at 6ABC much less as a result of the change in format.
